Melina 100 days

Filed under: — Andy @ 3:15 am

In Japan, one of the baby’s first big milestones is their 100th day. The baby is dressed up in a traditional outfit and made a gourmet meal. The parents then pretend to feed their baby, even though the baby still can not eat. The foods made have different meanings, but basically it is to signify that the baby should never have to worry about going hungry. For example the rock and the umeboshi in the middle signify the babies teeth become as strong and hard as a rock, and the baby lives to be as old and wrinkly as an umeboshi.


  1. Congratulations!

  2. She is so cute. She’s looking at the food like she’d much rather have milk. What does the fish symbolize?
